on their parent's health care plans until they're 26. if i recall right, governor romney said, hey, that was a part of the affordable care act, a part of obama care that he was going to try to keep. so to go of a the president's vote on the basis that we protected more young people from, you know, catastrophic health care costs, that we wanted to make sure people have access to birth control, and those kind of things, i think is going to strike the american people as just kind of very off kilter, and clearly some of the governor, republican governors and others recognize that it's another romney mistake. >> congressman chris van hollen with us this morning. nice to see you. appreciate you, as always. >>> christine's minding your business this morning. news on the stock market and bad news out of europe. >> yeah, lots going on. first let's talk about the markets, you guys. stock futures are up after a really tough day yesterday. since election day, the dow is down nearly 700 points since the election. this morning we learned that the euro zone has fallen back into recession. that's
're about to plummet. it's billionaire warren buffett. he says as long as president obama holds firm on the wealthiest americans paying more taxes, we can just go on right over that fiscal cliff and we will not dive back into recession. how do i know this? because poppy harlow knows this. she sat down for the exclusive interview. you have the greatest access to warren. every time there's news, you seem to get it. i was looking at your interview earlier. he's very candid with you about this. this doesn't look like it's for political gain in any way. we're past the election. it's incredible what he said. >> it really surprised me. i can't think of another big-named ceo out there who feels this way about the fiscal cliff. they're all saying do not go over it, we'll plunging into recession. that's what the congressional budget office says. but buffett does want an agreement in washington. he's not saying we can go over the cliff, we'll be fine. but he's saying if we have to, we will. the president needs to take a hard line on these negotiations with republicans. he says, we nparty. here'
in the coming days. >>> two other big stories we are following at this hour. right now we're waiting for remarks from president obama here in new york. he's here touring the devastation as a result of hurricane sandy and getting an update on recovery efforts. the president visiting staten island at this moment, one of the areas where thousands of people are still without power, many, many are homeless. more than two weeks after the storm, a lot of folks wondering where the help is. we will bring you the president's comments as he makes them. >>> plus, we are also getting new details on a scandal involving david petraeus. we now know he will testify before the house and senate intel committees tomorrow concerning the deadly terror attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. that comes as a new "wall street journal" report raises questions about the events leading up to his resignation. including whether he may have been pushed out not so much because of this affair, but for challenging the administration's version of events on libya. again, that is, that is news reported by our sister company, "the wa
and global challenges. getting the relationship with china right is a long-term effort. we will continue to make this a priority in president obama's second term and as new leadership takes the range in beijing. hu jintao had 13 face-to-face meetings when president obama came into office in 2009. we have built an extensive set of mechanisms and channels of communication to work on this relationship and i think it has resulted in a positive, constructive relationship, not to say there are not going to be issues, but i think we have put in place a superstructure to be able to manage these issues going forward. i have spent an enormous amount of time with chinese leadership, and i look forward to working with the new leadership team in beijing. fifth, and last element of strategy -- we're not going to do all 12. the fifth element of strategy involves advancing the region's architecture. we are seeking trade that is open, free and fair. we are seeking an open system in which the rules are clear and every nation plays by them. we continued to work with our partners toward a seamless regional

contraceptives was big with young college-age women and then finally obama-care, that was a big gift to young people and they turned out in large numbers. everything is transactional with this guy. there is absolutely no consideration whether these were the right things to do. the moral thing to do, the path of good policy at least we know he wasn't just pretending to be clueless. he seems lost and even desperate in defeat. but then there is the victor. president obama. he may have won the election but he can't retire his boxing gloves just yet. he took jabs from republicans led by john mccain and lindsay graham. they're up in arms about potential appointment of susan rice to secretary of state because of the fallout of the benghazi attacks. john mccain called those attacks the president's watergate and this morning he said rice mishandle the administration's respond. >> she's not qualified. anyone who goes on national television in defiance of the facts five days later we're all responsible for what we say and what we do. >> jennifer: he just said she's not qualified. not qualified. susan ri

right now. hi i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. the presidential press conference, that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. mostly a waste of time. as mr. obama did what he always does, provided long-winded answers to general questions. the first question from the white house press corps should have been very simple. exactly when were you told about general petraeus, mr. president? and why was this kept secret until after the election? simple. that's the kind of question s no wiggle room. instead, an associated press guy asked an opinion question rather than a fact question. allowing the president to dance. >> do you think that you, as commander and chief, and the american people should have been told that the cia chief was under investigation before the election? >> obviously, there is an ongoing investigation. i don't want to comment on the specifics of the investigation. the fbi has its own protocols in terms of how they proceed. and, you know, i'm going to let director muller and others examine those protocols and make some statements to the p
